Drone Panorama…

The sloping plain is in the El Paso Mountains Wilderness area, with Black Mountain on the right.  My DJI Phantom 4 was oriented toward the north-west, when this image was taken, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains can be seen in the distance.

An alien world…

…is what I think of at times, when I’m in the desert.  Perhaps this is just the perspective of someone who grew up on the east coast.

But, the barren landscape of the desert is a big part of its allure, to me.  Some of the images that I’ve captured with my DJI Phantom 4 (https://www.dji.com/phantom-4) add to the alien world-like feel to the desert, such as the image below:

Cajon Pass Abstract…

Here’s a bit of “abstract” art that I created with my DJI Phantom 4(https://www.dji.com/phantom-4.)  This was taken after some recent rains, in December, 2016.

Drone Photo: Cajon Pass…

Here is another image from the Cajon Pass, that I shot in February, 2017.  The drone was oriented toward the north, and the image was converted to black-and-white during post editing.

Mojave Expanse…

Of all the photos that I’ve taken with my DJI Phantom 4 (https://www.dji.com/phantom-4), this is one of my favorites.  I shot this in October, 2016 at an area in the Mojave Desert that is known as Robber’s Roost.  According to legend, infamous bandit Tiburcio and his gang camped here, while “casing” the nearby Freeman stage coach stop.

Calico Mountains, as art…

DCIM100MEDIADJI_0054.JPG

So, here I’ve used my DJI Phantom 4 (https://www.dji.com/phantom-4) to capture this rock formation in California’s Calico Mountains.  As a photographer, here are the settings that I used:  1/500/sec. @ f 2.8.  ISO 100.

I converted the image to black and white after the fact, using the simple Microsoft editing program that came with Windows 10.
